Manchester Scouts Raising Awareness for Homeless Charity

A Manchester scout group will sleepover at GO Manchester this weekend 

On Friday 13th November a Manchester scout group will be setting up camp in the atrium of GO Outdoors Manchester in Urban Exchange. The sleepover looks to raise awareness for local Manchester homeless charity Barnabus.

As part of earning their community badge, one Manchester scout group has chosen to help local homeless charity Barnabus by raising awareness with a sleepover in the atrium of the Manchester GO Outdoors store.

Barnabus help over 600 homeless people a week in Manchester and rely on donations and help where possible to help tackle what is a growing issue in the region. While staying in the store the scouts will receive a talk from a former homeless member of Barnabus to educate the Scouts about life on the street.

As well as this the scouts will also be creating a cardboard city which will be on display in the store to help raise awareness for the charity.
